Good Friday Morning,
I hope that you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, not much planned here, we are waiting to see what the weather brings us. I did see a news article saying that there was some warm weather on its way. So fingers crossed it's right and not too far away, the cynical side of my brain thinks that these 'heatwave' news articles are from the British tourist board to try and get people to 'staycation'. If we had the weather her we would definitely holiday here, we did when the children were small, although we used to end up spending so much money trying to find indoor activities to do in the rain, our last family holiday to Cornwall which was when the girls were about 1 we had two dry days out of 14. When we took the children to Spain we had sunshine pretty much every day which meant that they were happy either playing on the beach or by the pool or the lake, so apart from the cost of accommodation and travel we spent nothing more entertaining 4 children. Back then with Paul doing the job he did our holiday family time was very precious so we wanted to make the most of it. Who knows what will happen this year. We have a holiday booked and fully paid for (because it was transferred from last year) but whether we get to go remains to be seen. Janet, have you and Jim thought about going to Marigny this year?
Your Next Challenge
I was undecided about this weeks challenge, I was going through the different challenges we have had recently and wanting something different, I looked on Pinterest for ideas but to be honest after doing 5 new techniques back to back my brain is tired of thinking up new things. I came in to my craft room and laying on my craft desk were a few bits a pieces left over from my 'Faux Batik' card yesterday, I tried several different embellishment styles before deciding on just the sentiment. So laying on my desk were a selection of black die cuts, I was tidying them away and suddenly thought 'That's it' we will do a Silhouette Challenge this week, you can have what ever background you choose, your Silhouette doesn't have to be black either, if you look above I have a white silhouette too that works just as well, it could also be brown or navy blue too. You can add whatever other embellishments you like too.
I hope that this challenge will work for all of you and that you enjoy it.
I want to send huge hugs to our lovely Margaret who is in hospital right now, sending love and hugs for a speedy recovery my lovely XXX
Love and hugs to the rest of you too,
